http://www8.garmin.com/pressroom/mobile/033108e.html is a link to a press release from Garmin that their Mobile version coming out July 2008 will have the ability to use Google maps and some other neat features. However, the blurb does not say whether this applies to Mobile XT. I'd imagine it does. They're due for a 2009 map update for Mobile XT anyhow. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out.

I'm looking for PDA GPS software for my Verizon Touch, and have narrowed it down to OnCourse Navigator 8 to be released this month, or the July release of Garmin's Mobile XT as mentioned above. I have a GlobalSat 368i GPS puck, which is slim, attractive, fast, and sensitive. And the nice thing is that the charger for my Verizon Touch works on the GSat also so I don't have to carry around 2 different chargers.

I'd favor a product that is released on a 4 GB card and not a 2 GB card that Garmin is now released on, which leaves very litle for music and other goodies. OCN-8 will come in a 4 GB card. Hope the new Garmin XT will also.

Nothing new in Garmin Mobile XT, I just discovered. I bought it, and when it came in the map data was from 2007 so I have sent it back to Garmin. So much for that. The cust. serv. rep even assured me that if I bought directly from garmin it would have 2009 map data on it.
